The video circulating on various social media shows several City of Cape Town law enforcement officers dragging a man, who had been taking a bath, out of his shack while the naked man is fighting to go back inside the shack, presumably to put on some clothes.

The City of Town is in the process of suspending four law enforcement officers who were caught on camera manhandling the naked man in Khayelitsha, said News24.

In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that controversial Cape Town Mayor Dan Plato claims Bulelani Qholani, the man who was dragged naked out of his shack, took his clothes off on purpose.

On Wednesday, a video was shared of City of Cape Town law enforcement officers dragging a naked Qholani out of his Khayelitsha shack during evictions.

Speaking to eNCA, Plato has suggested that Qholani took his clothes off as a tactic to make the City of Cape Town look bad.
